First time here and it did not disappoint. The restaurant itself is quite cosy and its ideal for couples and small parties, but although small it's has a nice ambience. The food menu is varied, lots of local sourced fayre and the staff have good knowledge. I had the cheese board for example and it's nice to see and have... More

Our first visit to Wild Tyme, had been intending go for a while. We'll make sure we go again very soon. A week ago we were celebrating daughter's birthday at Le Manoir aux quat'saison also run by a similarly talented chef! We loved the care taken both with superb ingredients and presentation. If you grumble that it takes a while... More

We booked a table here after reading the reviews. We visited as a small group of friends. The food was presented beautifully although I could have a little more. Wine wand water was constantly topped up by very attentive staff.

I have eaten here four or five times. The food is consistently impressive in terms of quality, taste, creativity and presentation. The wine list isn't bad either. By far the best restaurant in the area. The cheese soufflé, and the venison, are delightful. Staff are welcoming and well-informed. Surely Michelin recognition is not far off?

Although a Chippy resident, had not managed to get to Wild Thyme for one reason or another. An interesting and "intimate" restaurant. Menu extensive. Quality of the cooking superb. The dishes were fantastic. Great flavour and textures. Only "negatives", if that's what I can call them, we're the overall time taken to consume 2 courses (2.5 hours)and the lack of... More

There was the choice of two menu's, a la carte or set meals, both looked fabulous and although we chose... More

Popped in for an impromptu lunch ... so glad we did. Perfect service, friendly staff, and the food is superb. Fabulous all round. Will be returning very soon ... oh, and some delightful art available to buy from local artists. Highly recommend you try this place!
